The San Joaquin Valley Health Fund awarded 47 San Joaquin Valley community-based organizations grants up to $50,000 to advance policy and systems change work in support of the San Joaquin Valley Health Fund’s Policy Platform (20 awardees) and to support COVID-19 Recovery and Resilience across the region (27 awardees). With more than $2 million in funding awarded, these community partners will support a wide range of advocacy activities in areas as distinct as immigrant rights, housing justice, school food access, equitable land use policy, community-informed local redistricting efforts and environmental justice. Regardless of their projects, all of the community partners are committed to the goal of advancing health and racial equity across the San Joaquin Valley in partnership with impacted residents.
